I guess I'm one of the richer ones with $13 in my checking account! Being a check-to-check student really is a horrible excuse. I had an expensive incident occur right after adopting my dog and guess what? All my expendable income went to the dog's food and shots while I ate ramen or nothing for almost 2 months. Just recently, $103 of my money (which I could REALLY use right now for gas/groceries) went to my dog's spay. I could have simply put it off, but then the dog could have went in heat increasing her chances of cancer, or possibly been impregnated (although highly unlikely since she's crated or supervised 101% of the time).
I've been check-to-check this entire year, and have not finished my college classes because of it, but I won't ever let that put my dog at risk. It wasn't her choice to be in my care, and it wouldn't be right of me to not fulfill my obligation.
Although you're blatantly being rude and disrespectful (as you were in the last thread), everything that people are saying is out of care for your dogs.
Let's say someone came to you with this story:
Hi, I'm a student with no money. I got two pit bulls and don't have the money to fix them, so I didn't properly supervise or separate them and now the female is pregnant. I never got her health checked during the pregnancy, and she only popped out two puppies. Oh, please also tell me where someone will fix my dogs for free. My inability to take responsibility should be other people's burden!
SO you're told to take them to a vet and you were irresponsible, both statements are 100% true. Why did you lash out and be disrespectful? Were you expecting some at-home miracle cure to fix the dog's situation and make everything ok?
I really hope you'll stick around and learn. Nobody is trying to run you off, and I hope you can acknowledge that your actions weren't the most responsible. I've made mistakes too, but I was never disrespectful to those pointing it out.
Please take advantage of all the good info people have given you on getting the dogs fixed. It will make you and your dog happier in the end.
